Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
  • Brother of Miss Kuhu Mangaroa of Kakahi.

    Private Mangaroa was wounded in action on 10 August 1915 during the August Offensive. He was evacuated off Gallipoli to Malta where he died of pleurissy on 30 December 1915.

    Two brothers served in WW1 and died : Ngare William Mangaroa (16/400) and Thompson Mangaroa (25556).

    From the spring of 1915, the hospitals and convalescent depots established on the islands of Malta and Gozo dealt with over 135,000 sick and wounded, chiefly from the campaigns in Gallipoli and Salonika, although increased submarine activity in the Mediterranean meant that fewer hospital ships were sent to the island from May 1917.
